TR writes: "A few weeks ago at IFA, Samsung announced its latest, notebook computer. Billed as "Lighter than air" there was no doubt that Samsung had Apple's under-featured ultra-portable firmly in its sights, and as the Korean giant started to reveal the specification of its new machine, it looked like the MacBook Air would be woefully outgunned. Of course MacBook Air buyers are generally more interested in looking cool while drinking a coffee in Starbucks, than whether or not their notebook has any connectivity. However, if you are concerned with what your ultra-portable notebook can do, rather than just how cool it looks, Samsung's X360 could be just what you're looking for.
Despite the fact that Samsung's latest notebook sounds more like a high definition gaming console, it has a huge amount going for it. First up, it is, as billed, lighter than air - or at least the MacBook Air. Samsung has quoted an official weight of 1.29kg, which is slightly heavier than the 1.27kg that was mentioned at the IFA pres conference. However, even taking the slightly heavier weight into account, the X360 is still lighter than the MacBook Air, which weighs in at 1.36kg."
